Chongqing is one of the most densely populated cities in China with a population of over 30 million. When railway engineers were asked to build a new line to cope with overcrowding in the city, they came up with an ingenious way of getting round the problem of demolishing people’s homes by building the track so it runs right through a residential building. The train line is located on the sixth to eighth floor of the building and it even has its own stop.
Locals say that the noise is not a big problem. Because of noise reducing equipment the train produces just 60 decibels of noise as it passes through the building — about as loud as a dishwasher.
Italian photographer Alessio Trerotoli with his project “Urban Melodies” is trying to create, by superimposing different pictures, a sort of abstract representation of urban landscapes and contemporary life from modern metropolis like Rome, New York, Paris, Berlin and many others. Trerotoli uses four or five different pictures of the same place, the same subject, to create every image. So everything is duplicated, lights and subjects multiply and build a new vision of urban life.
